Imagine a morning, afternoon or even a whole day spent with your best mom friend and your kids, with something fun enough for all of you to get excited about. Sound like a dream? Think again. Read on for mom date ideas around Portland that you can spend with your besties.

Portland Art Museum for Everyone

Moms, take a break from being tour guide. Families with babies under one year can head to the Baby Morning programs at the Portland Art Museum on the first Thursday of every month (pre-register, please!), when the group of caregivers and babes make a slow meander through the galleries with a docent, with time for coffee and conversation after. For older kids, family tours are available Sundays at 12:30 p.m. And every single day, kids get in free. Bonus! Don’t forget about the outdoor sculpture garden, where kids can let loose.
